It’s a nice sendoff for Kevin Youkilis at Fenway

No, the Red Sox didn’t get much for Kevin Youkilis when they traded him Sunday, but they never expected to under the circumstances.

They got a righthanded reliever, Zach Stewart, whom they will turn into a starter at Pawtucket. He is just 25, and the Sox have scouted him since he was at Texas Tech. They got utilityman Brent Lillibridge, 28, a righthanded hitter who can play both the infield and outfield and will join Boston’s 25-man roster as early as Monday.
